in the properties palette, text tab, column & text distances there is a 
"tabulators tab"...
yes, hidden in a crazy way, but here you can set your tabs and indents 
in a precise way!

all in all, i would always create a style when you need indents (it's 
also about having an harmonious formatting) but you can also do them 

voilà, it's almost magic :-)


p.s.: for the future, try to only quote the relevant part of the email 
you're replying to it makes reading the thread... and if you reply to a 
digest, set the subject to the original title :-)
that makes life easier for the guys who want to learn from the other 
posts... and for the ones like me who give answers...
